Appearance is a slightly hazy deep yellow with a decent sized white head that goes quick. A bit of lacing remains throughout the life of the brew. Smells of malt and earthy hops with notes of spice and a few other things. This tastes of a wheat/grainy malt flavor with a slight sweetness. There is a small hop taste in there as well but I can’t detect much else. Mouthfeel is decent with good carbonation. This is a beer that would be good to give to someone who is used to macros to try and convert them. A fairly tasty lager that I would probably get again.

12 oz battle poured into a pils glass. Thin white head and not much in the way of lacing. A single spot hovers in the center of the surface. Color is a pale straw yellow.

Smell has a slightly wet blanket grain aroma. Taste is surprisingly white grapish. A little spice from the yeast.

Mouthfeel is light but slightly oily.
